How do you hook a laptop to a television?

You will usually need an S-video cable to connect the laptop to the television - the S-video output on your laptop to the S-video input on your television. This is not a cable that comes with every laptop. If you want sound, you will also need to make that connection - usually from the headphone jack on your computer to the stereo in on your television.

How do you connect HDMI AV cable to Acer laptop?

HDMI cables are used as digital video and data links between video sources and televisions. HDMI is compatible with DVI interfaces so if the laptop has a DVI output, a DVI to HDMI cable can be used. If the laptop does not have HDMI or DVI, then there is no way to connect the VGA output to an HDMI input. There are several USB based video displays that can be purchased to connect to the laptop. The display can be used as a copy of the internal screen or it can extend the desktop across both screens. Select a display port that has either DVI or HDMI outputs.

What kind of plug would you need to hook-up to your t.v. from your laptop and view What is on your laptop?

Most Laptops come with an "S-video" port. If your TV can support S-Video you can buy a S-Video cable and connect it to the TV. If the TV does not come with a S Video input port you may want to look for an S-Video to RCA converter. which will provide you the Video Out in the same format as connecting a DVD player to the TV. (For Audio you can use your laptop speakers or can get another set of cable that can use the headphone outlet) Once you have made the connections- assuming you are running Windows- right click on desktop- select properties- go to the settings tab- you should see your TV in list of display- select the TV and click apply. (You may want to adjust the screen resolution to match your TV)

You want to connect your laptop to your tv with the s-video cable what do you need?

You will need an s-video cable and that's about it. Plug the cable into the laptop & into the back of the TV. Power up the laptop and the tv and set the tv to view the proper input signal. The laptop may not send a signal to the svideo port until you tell it to. Look for a key marked "Fn" This is called a function modifier key, and pressing it in concert with other keys on the keyboard trigger certain hardware functions. There will be a series of keys that have little subscripts or icons printed on them, ususally in the same color that the "Fn" key is printed with. Look for one that has a little picture that looks like a tv screen. Pressing Fn and the screen button will cycle the laptop through several display modes, one of which will be s-video output. Note that S-video will not send the audio to your tv, for that you will need a separate cable.

Will your laptop recognize dish dvr through s-video?

If your laptop has an S-video socket on it, it is most likely for OUTPUT only. It allows you to display your computer screen on a television but does not take into your computer any information from an external device such as the DVR. In order to bring information outputted by the DVR into your computer, you need a 'video capture device' installed on your computer. Since this is a laptop, get a USB video capture device, not PCI card, and its bundled software will allow you to watch and capture/record what is outputted by the DVR using your computer.
